tonight. and then overnight showers, very anemic rainfall totals as it sags from the north to the south. temperature-wise today, pretty spot on for this 19th day of the month of april. we are talking 50s, 60s at the beaches. 60s common at the beaches los altos 67 degrees all the way into burlingame. 70 in campbell around saratoga, los gatos, 70 in willow glen and san jose. 67 degrees fremont and in union city. newark, as well. east bay numbers high 60s a few low 70s towards the delta. discovery bay you will top off with the sunshine at 70. a south-southwest breeze 5 to 15 in the north bay starting to notice the increasing clouds before lunchtime. in fact, we should have before sunset tonight some light rain showers in the cloverdale area. we'll track the incoming system together. we'll tell you how much rain to expect coming up. capital wait for the weekend. never too early to get excited about the weekend, can't wait

bargain compared to other prices we have seen. a lot of "dub nation" is wishing they had that kind of cash so they could be this close to the game 2 action. the warriors sellout streak is now 231 consecutive games at oracle arena. but you don't have to pay thousands to be here. we found tickets online at warriors.com for $127 each. warriors power forward david west tells us what needs to happen game 2 so they can repeat game 1's outcome. >> for us gonna be imperative that we always show them a wall. i thought we did a better job of that in the second half. >> reporter: a couple of players' health is up in the air this morning. kevin durant is listed as questionable because of a strained calf. so that would mean matt barnes who is also questionable would most likely get more minutes as would rookie patrick mccaw and if andre iguodala could step up his game that would be great, too. so one cool thing that the warriors announced yesterday
was a new facebook messenger bot. if you go online and like the warriors fan page, you'll be able to ask all sorts of questions directly to the warriors organization as the play-offs continue. so check it out. live from oracle arena, jackie ward, kpix 5. ibm reporting a slump in revenue for the 20th quarter in a row. ill wagner of cbsmoneywatch.com reports. >> reporter: good morning. right now futures are pointing to a higher open. yesterday, earnings were disappointing for johnson & johnson. dow and nasdaq were both down. ibm its 20th quarter of falling revenue. they have been trying to transform the business moving away from computer hardware focusing on cloud computing an artificial intelligence. and lower gas prices have not put the brakes on electric powered vehicles. the survey from aaa found 15% of americans are likely to buy an electric vehicle as the next car roughly the same percentage of people who plan to buy a
